The decommissioning of nuclear facilities requires precision and safety for the quick and effective removal of surface decontamination. Bluegrass uses The Marcrist concrete shaver for its proven track record of efficiently removing contaminates from walls and floors with minimal waste, creating an ease of survey that saves time and money while ensuring worker safety. Using this robust concrete shaving equipment simplifies the process, meeting the demands of wall and ceiling decontamination. Bluegrass incorporates this concrete shaving best practice during the decommissioning of nuclear facilities to ensure an overall customer-and project-specific solution that's successful.
Bluegrass has completed more than 110 successful nuclear decommissioning projects, many of which required the precision concrete shaving capabilities of The Marcrist. Using HEPA vacuums to eliminate the spread of contamination, this concrete shaving equipment removes concrete 1/16 to 1/4 inches deep and 10 inches wide from floors and up to 1/4 inch deep and 11 3/4 wide in a single, precise pass on walls or ceilings. This robust concrete shaving equipment leaves completely smooth surfaces for a reliable, proven surface decontamination.
When precision concrete shaving and dependability matter, Bluegrass provides reliable, robust equipment and an experienced crew capable of meeting every project need. Learn more about our nuclear decommissioning experience and services.
